On September 4, 2017, during the XXI World Congress on Safety and Health at Work, the International Social Security Association (ISSA) launched Vision Zero – the first-ever global prevention campaign. Vision Zero expresses the belief that every accident, disease, or injury at work can be prevented if the safety, health, and wellbeing of people comes first. More than 8,000 companies from across the globe have since expressed their commitment to the Vision Zero mindset and signed up as campaign partners. A group of Safety, Health, and Environment managers from renowned international companies met in October 2018 by invitation from the ISSA secretary general and agreed to set up a Global Vision Zero Business Council.
